Five notes in the treble clef: Play with your Right Hand

Remember where you can find the notes on the piano.

The Clef is what is used to assign specific note names to each of the lines and spaces. The “Treble Clef” and the “Bass Clef” are the most common clefs. The treble clef tells us that the note G is on the second line.

The notes are written on the Music Staff. The staff has 5 lines and 4 spaces.

The “Treble Clef” and the “Bass Clef” are the most common clefs.

The treble clef tells us that the note G is on the second line.
